ENGL-1058-60 Short, Short Fiction

Think you don't have time to read for pleasure? Think again! This course examines short, short stories that are under 1000 words, yet still manage to pack in complex plots, characters, narrators, settings, themes, and language. Although short short fiction is quick and easy to read (from 1 minute to 15 minutes), the form requires an enormous amount of skill, so we will explore what it takes to create successful short short fiction, and evaluate stories based on common elements.

FILM-1004-60 Film Genres – Epic 

This course is designed to develop a critical approach to the medium of film and epic films, to examine individual creative expression in the films of important directors within the genre, to develop the ability to identify technical aspects of film, and to discern mediocre and excellent use of filmmaking technique.

INDS-1101-60 Living Sustainably       

This course discusses some of the most important environmental challenges people presently face living in Canada and in the world at large.

In covering these topics, the course provides the opportunity to explore and answer the question of what it means to live sustainably.

INDS-1129-60 90's Pop Culture       

The 1990s are sometimes understood as a period of time between major events. Occurring between the end of the decades-long Cold War and prior to the 9/11, retrospective analyses of the 90s often describe it as a decade of relative peace and prosperity; the rise of the Internet ushered in a new era of technological advances while the dot-com bubble enriched many. However, by contextualizing the supposed irreverence of the 90s against Kuwait and the first Gulf War, civil right activism and neoliberal economics in the West, the freeing of Nelson Mandela, the end of apartheid South Africa, and the Bosnia and Rwandan genocides-among others- this course invites students to reconsider this era as a period of formative change with significant reverberations across the 2000s. In this course, students will analyze a range of 90s cultural media including  music videos, TV show episodes, movies and documentaries, songs, magazine articles, and advertisements as they seek to understand why the 1990s were a decade of profound change and how those changes continue to impact popular culture in the 2020s.
